She has things to do, like occupying sunbeams, drinking out of the bathroom sink, and being beautiful – on four legs, or three!

03-27-14 – (Still Day 1 After Surgery) Hot Compress and Activity in the Evening

Filed under: Uncategorized — ddmckenna at 7:59 pm on Thursday, March 27, 2014

Hot compress for five minutes 2-3 times per day for the next few days. She seems to like it. After her five minutes I put it behind her so she could still snuggle up to it. Anything I can do to make her recovery less painful, the better!


She slept like a little rock for a few hours, then woke up, ran to the litter box, then ate, and tried to jump up on the sink. I got there before she launched herself thank goodness. I carefully lifted her up and she did her usual thing. Stubborn little creature that she is, she won’t even take a day off from her routine.

Glad she is using the litter box. Some cats I read about on other blogs didn’t go for like ten days. No problems here though.

The tshirt kept slipping down so I went and bought her some baby onesies, as some other Tripawds bloggers mentioned. Those seem to work slightly better but still slipping down to expose part if the scar. I’ll have to figure that out before the stitches start to get itchy.

Awwww, so glad Misty is able to continue her sink-drinkin’ routine!! You know, it’s actually wonderful that she wants to stick to her old routines – it means that she’s feeling okay, and not super scared. What a wonderful mommy she has for helping her feel so comfortable! 🙂
